MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Serpent/CHICCHAN “lights the fuse that magnifies and explodes the life force itself.” The Seed/KAN trecena is guiding us to see ourselves as we would choose to be. “I Am” are the words God spoke when Moses asked who He/She was. Through a Spark of the Divine, we were given the power to be whatever we Say we Are.
2 Serpent/CHICCHAN asks us to consider our highest Spiritual Aspirations. Tone 2 is about making choices and looking at things from two sides. As we dream of our own “I Am” we might remember to see things from the perspective of our whole body and soul.
THE TRECENA OF SEED/KAN
2 Serpent/CHICCHAN (Cherokee, Serpent/DO’TSI)
Galactic Tone 2: Mysterious as the question ‘to be or not to be?” Two is the recognition of the separation of self from all else and the desire to be rejoined. Walking a balance while making choices of all kinds, light/dark, male/female, good/bad, Yin/Yang, is the energy of this number. Experiencing the differences between one and another is the use and purpose of this number.
Serpent/CHICCHAN: Movement and the creation of time. Sensual and dramatic, this sun sign embodies intense instinctual wisdom and creates a connection from Earth bound, to Heavenly aspirations. By sincere service to others, Serpent opens and expands its heart. Serpent aligns authority and the truth to bring justice that is quick and sure. Serpents are very adaptable, even fluid until trapped in a corner, and then they explode. Serpents, venomous temper poisons itself as well as others by creating resentful, suppressive and even destructive attitudes.
Cherokee, Serpent/DO’TSI: Serpent’s symbol is Constellation Serpens. Serpent people are Sky people who come to earth periodically as Educators. As above-So below, on Earth the Serpent is the roots of the tree of knowledge. Serpent power is vital energy, the moving force, the instinct and desire for creativity, the trigger that sets off the action. It lights the fuse that magnifies and explodes the life force itself. Knowledge, combining science, technology and psychology, plus spirituality are seeded on the planet.
Journey of Dynamic Consciousness: Day 2
We’re approaching the Mayan New Year as it is celebrated by the Quiche/MAYA (8 Monkey/CHUEN) We are approaching a new ending/beginning of a 260-day cycle. Like any new year, it’s natural to look forward and backward in time, and to consider personal goals. We are setting the Sacred Intentions we carry with us into the Holy of Holies as we are initiated into a new year.
The world reflects that dynamic changes are happening all around us. This is evidence of the dramatic transformation we are also capable of now. We exist between the known and the unknown. We can call to ourselves those Spiritual Gifts that we would dream of making our own.
To all my relations, may we consider our body as a consciousness that is given its own life force. May we call upon a response from our whole-selves as we choose the dreams we carry forward.
